Had at the brewery and drank a 32oz growler of it. This was retired but they brought it back on 07/01/2015 for a bit. Brewed with hallertau blanc and Nelson sauvin hops. Basically, this is Elm City on steroids. Drinks and feels like a German Pilsner: light, crisp, and dry finish. The hops give off a very herbal, bitter, apple, white wine, and a touch of spice in the flavor. Light and drinkable.

32oz growler, filled at the brewery a few hours ago and poured into a Duvel tulip.

A: Slightly hazy bright gold body under two fingers of dense, pillowy white foam. Good retention and terrific lacing. Excellent.

S: Delightfully fresh, hoppy aroma. Tons of grass, dank herbaceousness, and citrus - particularly lemon. Direct and enticing.

T: Fruity hops up front, with lemon and mango quickly giving way to strong herbal notes; grapefruit asserts itself toward the back end, with just a hint of clean, bready maltiness providing balance. The finish is all hops again, with crisp bitterness and a lingering, earthy, resinous aftertaste that keeps me thirsty for another sip. Refreshing and complex - just terrific for the style.

M: Fairly light-bodied with a substantial dose of lively, creamy carbonation. Vivacious without being prickly. Great.

O: Hands-down one of the best Blonde Ales I've ever had. I'm loving the Hallertau Blanc hop - it walks the line between Old and New World styles, providing tremendous complexity without completely overwhelming the delicate malt backbone. Perfect summer session ale.

Cheers!
